when it comes to employment and wages.... sharon epperson looks at one organization helping many young men and women find new career opportunities. "there were times where i didn't know what i was going to eat, there were times where i didn't know where i was going to sleep" at 18, brandon jordan was a high school dropout... homeless... but not
12:46 pm
"i wanted more for myself but i didn't quite have the opportunity" but that all changed while working at a fast food restaurant last summer, he saw an ad for year up jordan - now 24 - applied to the non- profit, which offers low-income young adults six months of training and a six- month corporate internship in information technology, finance or customer service. "it just seems too good to be true when you hear about it" more than 6 and half million 16 to 24 year olds in the u.s. are not in school or working. almost one-third of them are black. year up - which offers a daily stipend and college credit to each participant -- is aimed at helping these so-called "opportunity youth." "students go through a 6-month bootcamp, learning technical and professional skills, including the importance of showing up on time. they'll get a stipend for every day they attend class, but they'll lose points, and money, if they're late, dress unprofessionally or fail to complete assignments. and if they lose too many points, they're out." gerald chertavian founded year
12:47 pm
"we know that talent is distributed evenly across this country yet opportunity is not." twenty-five percent of those who start year up don't finish. those who make it through the first six months are awarded a six-month internship. about 250 companies have partnered with year up and spend almost 28-thousand dollars to cover the cost of each each intern. year up alum bryan goodson was working in a pizza shop three years ago, now he's a business solutions consultant at salesforce.com, which has hired more than half of the 200 interns it has taken since 2009. "if someone told me three years ago that i'd be doing what i'm doing today, i wouldn't believe it, i might even have laughed." 85-percent of year up alums have a full-time job or are enrolled in college full time within four months of completing the program. jordan hopes to follow goodson's path. he landed an internship in the it department at the retailer aaron's "i was like yeah you know, i did gonna do this,

good afternoon.. this is the agribusiness report.. i'm david geiger. in a vote of 14 to 6 the biotechnology labeling solutions markup passed today in the senate agriculture committee.. according to the draft, it would require usda to set a voluntary national food labeling standard for genetically engineered foods, preempt state labeling laws on both gmo foods and seed, and require usda to provide consumers with information on the benefits of biotechnology. senator pat
12:52 pm
the ag committee was pushing for the legislation.. he showed a letter supporting the chairman's mark.. of six hundred 52 organizations representing parts of the whole food chain. "never before have we seen such a coalition of our constituents all united behind such an effort. their message is clear. it is time for us to act and it's time for us to provide certainty in the marketplace by approving the mark before us today." in july.. vermont will implement a mandatory genetically engineered labeling law. former ag chair senator patrick leahy from vermont says the senate bill undermines the public right to know.. and it tramples on state rights.. and replaces them with a voluntary standard that already exists. and would block other states bills like alaska's and virginia's. "i think it's a solution looking for a non-existant problem. it's a last minute attack on vermont's laws. vermont is right to set priorities at the state government level." leahy adds there is a grace

vermont law goes into effect. iowa senator joni ernst is also on the ag committee.. she says she looks back at her home of montgomery county.. where household incomes average in the forty thousand dollar range.. she says mandatory labeling could affect all consumers. "if we are to go ahead and implement vermont's law, and as that would affect consumers nationwide to the tune of about 1,052 dollars per household, we're already stretching our incomes pretty thin." ernst says she understands the need to know but there's an impact to consumers and it is challenging for low to moderate income families. ernst says she understands the need to know but there's an impact to consumers and it is challenging for low to moderate income families. low to moderate income families. and that's all i have for the
